Personal notes on the shopping bags? Awesome. This shopper was great, actually. She noticed something in my order that she thought was “out of character” and called me to confirm a change. Above and beyond, for sure!

We’ve used the Instacart service at least ten times now. I can’t say enough good things about it! Basically, you’re hiring a personal shopper to go to local stores and get your groceries. The delivery fee is very low (I paid $3 once) or many times free. I think they work it into the grocery pricing, but not so much that I’ve ever noticed things being way more expensive. Then again, I haven’t been to the supermarket for many months now! In Chicago, they’ll go to Whole Foods, Mariano’s, Jewel, Plum Market, Costco, or Stanley’s. Such a great time saver, especially with a baby!

If you want to give Instacart a try, use this link. You’ll get $10 off and I’ll get $5 off!
